Seems I am running behind today. I have a bit of what my Momma called "lead in the arse". Actually I have been doing research for my new book coming out called "The House".
A brief synopsis is there is a couple that moves into a new house and the hidden old mountain cabin next door is empty. One night the man, David, hears noises and see's lights. The next morning, through a chain of events they begin to research the old place and find out it is the site of many murder/suicides.
And that is all I will tell you about it except that it takes place in the Mountains of North Carolina. So I have had to do some research on superstitions of my area because you know those hill folk, they have a ton of them.
A few of them I have found interesting because they aren't just hill superstitions but ones I have heard all my life such as:
Don't pick up a penny on tails and keep it, give it to the next person you see to give them good luck.
If a bird flies into your house there will be a death in your family.
Death always comes in three, as does bad luck.
Don't cut your hair on Sunday because it will grown back quicker. (I guess if it's a bad hair cut then that could be considered a good thing! LOL)
Nonetheless, I have found several sites with some interesting superstitions. So my question is: what are some you know?
I look forward to hearing your responses! :)
Have a great day and check back in tomorrow!
